Follow the Money! It's Spring - let's Walk!
This building is in the news lately - for the reason that its current owner, NYU, wants to connect it to its neighbor via a passageway. And the residents in that next building are objecting! Shades of Greenwich Village!
A Public Tour with The Street Teacher
I have scheduled this tour with a sense of the present state of our health - so put on your sneakers, take a look and sign up!
The Upper East Side: Wealth, Health, Privilege, and Progress
When and Where: Sunday, July 27 - 1:00pm to 3:00pm, please meet at the northwest corner of E. 78th St. and Lexington Avenue (where the Kinko's/Fed Ex store is).
Cost: $25 per person
We shall walk this neighborhood to discover curiosities like:
a. Just where did Citizens United come from?
b. How could the "trickle-down" theory actually work?
c. Should "the government" care about our health?
d. Are the rich truly different from you and me - and how?
e. Who were these residents of our neighborhood, really?

Put your "two cents" in! From time to time The Street Teacher publishes
The Talk of New York, our blog in which I relate our discoveries in the City as we walk and travel throughout its streets and avenues - and alleys and riversides. I hope you click on it and subscribe - and contribute. Yes! You can make a difference! I think your contributions to the offerings here at The Street Teacher will make you more a part of us - and all of us together a boost to New York.
